The Division 2: Warlords Of New York is finally here!
This is the first major expansion for The Division 2 since the game was released in March last year.
Warlords of New York sends you back to New York city, the setting for the first game.
This release launching the games Year 2 content.
You’ll get the chance to reunite with old enemies like the Cleaners and the Rikers, which is a welcome change with the Cleaners probably the most interesting faction in the games world.
Aaron “Bloody” Keener
The expansion has you facing off against the antagonist of the original, Aaron Keener, I’m sure we all remember that asshole.
Keener is backed up by his squad of rogue Division agents who are equipped with the latest technology invented to wipe you out.
You’ll get the chance to visit areas inaccessible in the first game around the district of Lower Manhattan, including Battery Park, Twin Bridges, Civic Center, and the Financial District.
This expansion will also introduce new end game content once you finish the main campaign in both the New York and D.C areas.
Warlords Of New York also offers 8 interlinked side missions.
These missions let players investigate Keener’s operation and reveal more about his plans.
Revised Gear Score System
There are big gameplay changes with the new expansion.
The level cap has now been increased to 40, with several tweaks being made to acquiring gear, inventory management and loot drops.
Massive did admit that most players seemed to drop off at the end game.
Attributing this to the gear score grind and limiting UI involved in managing it all.
One of the most exciting changes is the ability to hunt for “god roll” weapons.
These weapons have upgraded stats over their conventional counterparts, which helps to understand your power level in regards to weapons.
Skill mods have been revamped to encourage more build diversity and stop players sticking to the standard DPS builds.
Massive have clearly been listening to the fan base.
The new changes help improve RNG in all world tiers and make the game more streamlined for old and new players.
The Return of the Sticky Bomb
New skills are available to help improve build diversity even further with four new skills available.
These include Explosive Sticky Bomb, Incendiary Sticky Bomb, Trip-wire Tap and Decoy.
You can already imagine the carnage in the Dark Zone with the sticky bomb back in your arsenal.
The Warlords of New York Expansion is available on Xbox One, PS4, Stadia and PC.
